Reviews - What do customers think about Bad Girls of the Bible: Exploring Women of Questionable Virtue?

Biblically flawed with an agenda  Aug 26, 2007
If you're searching for a book to study the "bad girls" more in-depth, this one isn't it. Much of the authors "facts" are purely speculative. Much like todays popular culture, she makes heroes of the wicked and tears down those who act righteously. It's scary to think that she is an ordained clergywoman in the United Church Of Christ. She's obviously a radical feminist who believes that all the women in her book got a bad rap and all men are scum. Don't waste your time or money on this one.
Spiritually Misguided  Apr 2, 2007
I was very disappointed in this book. Although it contained extensive background and historic info on each "Bad Girl", I felt that it was spiritually weak and not biblically correct in its opinions. Jezebel was one of the most wicked women ever explored in the Bible, yet the author describes her as "religiously committed, politically savy, determined, self-assured, bodacious, and clever. She was dedicated to her family and a zealous missionary for Baal. And she died as she lived--royally!" From this desription, you would have thought she was Mother Teresa instead of a violet woman who had many prophets killed just because they were men of God. The author also comes across as anti-male. I was disappointed and felt I had wasted my money.
Please note two different books...  Jan 11, 2004
There is some confusion because there are two books with the same title. Bad Girls of the Bible by Barbara Essex is terrific! She uses sound biblical interpretation to help us uncover the "real" story of infamous biblical women. She goes beneath the surface and uses history, archeology and other tools to get at the heart of the women's stories. She doesn't berate them, but helps us see their more positive qualities even though they are being used to move the biblical story forward. This book is fabulous!
